A Spark May Ruin a Farm 



O 



NE spark on the roof — a light wind — just brisk enough to fan the leaves 
on the trees — may bring your home down in ruins about you while 
you sleep. 

That is the story that has been repeated thousands upon thousands of times on 
the American farm. Farm fires have become so common that the newspapers 
don't find the stories interesting enough to print and people do nothing more than 
look at the ashes and pass on. 

But to you — the loss of your home is a crushing blow. It means the work 
of a lifetime sacrificed to a spark. Loved ones homeless. Things and surroundings 
prized possessions that insurance money cannot buy — all this — wiped out in a 
few minutes by a spark — a single spark. 

Perhaps the spark came from your own chimney — a brush fire far from the 
house or barns — sparks from a neighboring fire — a passing locomotive — or 
spontaneous combustion. It can happen to you anytime. 

And if you do not think sparks carry long distances just build a brush fire 
some breezy night — and watch the sparks fly. They sail out on the wind like 
dried leaves — and as far. 

The city of Salem, Massachusetts, was all but wiped out by a fire that started 
in ONE little building. The night was a windy one. The sparks were caught in 
little gusts and whirled out in every direction. They settled upon hundreds of 
wood shingle roofs. A few hours later 15,000 souls were homeless — everything 
lost and one of New England's historic cities stood in naked black ruins. 

At Columbus, Georgia, a short while back — sparks from a cotton compress 
started fires on 29 roofs at the same time — but unusually fine fighting equipment 
soon had it under control. 



March 



Nash- 



ville, Tennessee, saw 700 homes and other buildings go up in smoke the same 
day— and Augusta added the third fire for the day. The total loss was close to 

$25,000,000 — 

possible. 



and in every instance the wood shingle made this terrific loss 



And the farm is located at a distance from cities and towns — away from fire 
fighting apparatus. Consequendy the danger is far greater. In the city the fire 
companies are on the ground in a very few minutes. On the farm a much longer 
time is required to get any kind of assistance.

A roof lire is a bad fire and it is the most common sort of fire. Out of 

six hundred and ninety fires in Montgomery, Ala., three hundred and three 

tarted on wood shingle roofs— and the average is higher in the suburban and rural 
districts. 

If FIRE PROTECTION is needed anywhere it is needed on the farm 
and every farm owner owes it to himself and to his family to make his home 
SAFE against the possibility of FIRE. Certainly he cannot afford to take 
chances with wood shingles. 

The wood shingle has left a trail of embers and disaster and lives wherever it 
has been used. With a true American 44 it-never-ean-happen-to-us" feeling we 
have gone on building our roofs of kindling wood when we knew that the\

Asbestos cannot burn. Neither can cement. Consequently a shingle made 
from these materials gives you more protection than you can get from any other 
form of roofing material. 

They can't wear out. They never curl up — warp or split or dry out like wood. 
They never chip or shale off or work loose like slate. They never rust or blow 
off like tin. In fact an Ambler Asbestos Shingle Roof is a permanent roof. 
Weather can't hurt it. Extreme heat or extreme cold does not affect it one way 
or the other. 

Nor does the wind get under and rip the shingles off. Ambler Asbestos 
Shingles (Century Brand) lie so close — so snug to each other and to the roof that the 
air cannot get under them. During the New Orleans Tornado of September 29th, 
1915, Ambler Shingles distinguished themselves. With roofs going off all around 
Ambler Shingles held. We prepared a special book about that unusual storm. 
Shall we send you a copy ? 

And Ambler Asbestos Shingles become tougher and stronger as they grow 
older — they improve upon exposure to the weather. You never have to paint them. 
They don't require frequent or even occasional attention. Once you put them on 
your house you are roofed for life. 

You need never paint them or patch them. They hold their original beauty 
and attractiveness as long as they last, and your roof always looks bright and fresh 
and new as a result. We know numerous roofs that have not had ten cents spent 
upon them in as many years. 



These Claims are Quickly Proved 

Not a single virtue of Ambler Asbestos Shingles has been over-estimated in 
this circular. Every statement can be proved. If you do not have an encyclopedia 
handy — write the editor of your farm journal. Ask him to tell you something 
about the endurance of concrete. 

He'll tell you of buildings reared in forgotten ages of antiquity. The old 
buildings of ancient Greece and Rome were all built of concrete. Time — earth 
disturbances — wars have reduced many of them— but in all the thousands of years 
since they were built time lost the fight, and enough of the buildings stand to 
enable identification. 

Asbestos has quite as long a history. It was used by the ancients as a "funeral 
cloth of kings." Its fire resisting qualities were known by the ancient tribes of 
both Europe and Asia. 

So your editor or encyclopedia will tell you that neither of these materials can 
burn. That the action of the atmosphere has no effect upon them — that heat or 
cold will not impair them — in fact that nothing short of deliberate destruction 
will injure them.

The real story of the inefficient 
roof is told every day in the news- 
papers. But the story of the roof 
that leaks — the roof that requires 
frequent patching and painting is 
told only in bills and disappoint- 
ment. 

The only solution is the selec- 
tion of a roof that can neither 
burn or wear out and the only 
such roof we know is the roof 
built with Ambler Asbestos 
Shingles. Specify that roof and 
be sure.

AMBLER ASBESTOS SHINGLES 

(CENTURY BRAND) 



: 




\i 



A physician's garage at Newport, R. I. 

The roof and upper side walls of this garage were laid when the garage was built, eleven years ago. Since 
that time not a penny has been spent for either paint or repairs and the roof is just as tight and just as sound as 
it was the day it was laid. And all this in spite of the fact that it has been subjected to the most severe winter 
weather— the kind of freezes, snows, rains and winds that tear up the New England coast. Looking at the roc 
today one gets the impression that it cannot be more than a few months old. There are more than four hundred 
other garages and costly homes at Newport, R. I , covered with Ambler Asbestos Shingles (Century Brand). 



Indian Red 



Newport Gray 



Blue Black 


















The three striking colors in which Ambler Asbestos Shingles (Century Brand) are made- and the three 
popular methods of application when combined, make possible a number of color and decorative effe< . All 
styles made in the several colors.
